Intern Seminary Student who speaks Spanish

First Congregational United Church of Christ at Perris, California made a serious decision to reach out to the Hispanic population of Perris which is now 87% in our immediate neighborhood. We already have three families with children and beginning to assimilate themselves into the life of the church. In order to reach our goal is to explore the assistance of Claremont School of Theology to work in cooperation with their Internship Program. Our basic need is to have an Intern Seminary Student who can speak Hispanic to conduct Bible study at 8:30 A.M. and also lead the worship service at 10:00 A.M. at the Fellowship Hall.

And then by 11:15 A.M the English worship service will join with the Hispanic people of God to get to know each other. The church would be able to pay the mileage back and forth plus a dinner. We greatly look forward to fulfill our vision of a multicultural community of faith. Thank you and we greatly value your kind assistance.
